Each bullet-resistant protective barrier product we make is designed to greatly enhance safety and security. And while making these products is the first step, they also have to be installed correctly in order to gain the full safety benefits. At Creative Industries, we do both! We know the proper way to install bulletproof glass, whether it’s at hospitals, schools, City Hall, a bank, or any other kind of business. Call us toll-free at 800-776-2068 to discuss your bulletproof barrier needs!

Find Out the Installation Plans for Your Bulletproof Solution

When adding bullet-resistant products to a site, whether it’s a commercial property, government building, business, or a company’s professional office, be sure you find out the details of the installation ahead of time. Bulletproofing is often part of a larger remodeling effort as opposed to a standalone project, so check with the contractor about who is actually going to handle the installation and double-check their qualifications to do it. After all, you want it done right. The main project contractor will probably subcontract out the installation, and that’s where issues can arise if the subcontractor doesn’t know the proper way to install bulletproof glass.

When Bulletproof Glass Installation Goes Wrong

A bullet-resistant barrier installed incorrectly may fail to provide the level of protection you were expecting. We’ve seen bulletproof windows installed backward, which can reduce their functionality both in terms of ballistic protection as well as communication through the barrier. We’ve also seen poor installations that are just downright ugly. You should never have to sacrifice aesthetic appeal to protect your employees from the threat of gun violence at your facilities. 

Creative Industries and Stadium Expertise

The stadiums of today are a far cry from what they used to be decades ago. At creative industries, we’ve literally worked with a quarter of stadium venues and properties across the nation. In fact, you’ll see our products installed at major league sports centers such as the following:

Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City
Coors Field, Denver
Marlins Baseball Stadium, Miami
Raymond James Stadium, Tampa Bay
Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis
Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis
PNCPark, Pittsburgh
Red Bull Arena, New Jersey

Those are some high-visibility venues, but our products have also been installed in a wide range of college and university facilities, as well as literally hundreds of high school stadiums. Any venue that involves lots of foot-traffic for purchasing tickets to an event is a place that ought to have bullet-resistant barriers in place. The most common types of products we make for these facilities include the bulletproof ticket window, the exterior service window with multi-lites, the exterior exchange window, and a much wider range of bullet-resistant windows if the area is not exposed to the elements. The goal of these products is to facilitate the transaction between worker and customer with an added layer of safety and security.

Fabrication and Installation Go Hand-in-Hand

We highlighted our stadium work because those tend to be big projects with a lot of moving parts. But we’ve also worked on significant projects at schools, hospitals, convenience stores, and all kinds of retail stores and other businesses. In each case, we make sure you know the importance of planning the installation with contractors who understand the proper way to install bulletproof glass.
